Well, as long as the date for River Falls stays the same (that is, different from South Sub) AV should be going? I'm excited because RF was one of my favorite competitions my sophomore year and was great practice.

Sup y'all.

I'm so disappointed in the events this year, and especially with MN taking out MP. That would have been such a fun event to proctor.

I almost screamed when I saw that MP was taken out. What the heck even is Rollercoaster? The rules haven't been released yet or something? I've been looking forward to MP coming back since my freshmen year when I as too much of a newb to do it. Will Boyceville run it as an event even? Gargh.

Words cannot express my frustration.

Haha yeah according to the state director, the board thought MP was a hassle to run or something, and they thought roller coaster looked fun so they chose that instead... Lol same thing happened my freshman year with Mission, we basically waited the last day to hack something together in a Rubbermaid tub...

Both roller coaster and MP will be run at Boyceville, and at least MP will be run at River Falls so it's not too bad.

Edit: Virginia trial roller coaster rules are here. I think the official MN rules are given out to teams once they register with MN SO.

That reminds me of that one time at Boyceville my freshmen year where the MP device threw a domino at a judge (completely unplanned for, of course)

Still a bit frustrated about them cutting MP, but from the rules Rollercoaster looks fun.

The rules for Roller Coaster are on the Minnesota SO website! Although the rules they have there seem to be identical to your link

No, but it's the first year in quite a while. :D
We've got high hopes for them this year though. Hopefully they'll keep scioly going in the future!

Good to see that Chippewa is finally on the Scioly bandwagon. And as long as they do better than Highview, I'm satisfied. :D
